of exiled iraqis, but i did take that position on syria and egypt, and you are with a situation where you have people fighting for the very values we say we are standing for, and you say we will not help you because that would mean our betraying our values of not wanting to kill, we fought for our own liberty. i agree that you have to understand how serious the decision is, and i think for the united states to say that we will not use force in defense of our values or to support others carrying our values -- >> i think america's values are kind of twisted, those of us that live in the country, there's not one single thread of value that we can wrap ourselves around. there's a little bit of hypocrisy when we talk about american values when you look at what happens across the world in the things we have done in the name of our values. the moral stand that you want to take and maybe mr. hitchens wanted to take -- >> you mean there are not values we stand for -- >> i think we're hypocritical. we pick and choose. we talk about what about sudan and somalia, and all the other countries where peo

's going to be hard to predict that given what's going on in syria and the arab spring activities and whether they start to recede or whether they continue to build. and knowing that and understanding that and understanding america's position in iraq and then in the region, is it enough? is it enough to convince people to stay metered in their aggression or not? >> ambassador bremmer, i can't let you all go without asking you a political question. and is it's a question that's been raised again and again very recently. at least by senator mccain in a speech. let's listen to what he had to say and come back and talk about it. >> unfortunately, it is clear that this decision of a complete pullout of the united states troops from iraq was dictated by politics and not our national security interests. i believe that history will judge this president's leadership with the scorn and disdain that it deserves. >> you know, it's kind of divided out there in the country, 50% say, yeah, we achieved our goals. just a little less than that disagree. at the end of the day, do you think that the

the stakes are different in syria than they are in oakland. but they are by and large middle-class people. the more educated members of their society who are -- have reached a sense of grimness about the prospects of their country, their democracies, their personal likeliho livelihoods and decided in this contagious way to get off the couch and take out the earplugs and express complaints out in the streets. >> what do you think? is it -- what i'm struck by is it's happening in dictatorships, but it's happening in democracies. lots of established democracies. >> yes. i think we're in an age of -- we both know this and don't notice it fully. we're in an age of the overthrow of establishments, period. as americans, we are always moved by the stirrings of others toward freedom, and we understand what's going on in america against establishments. but it is also true, and my great concern is that this inherently makes the world less stable. i am old enough -- maybe we all are, too, to appreciate stability. particularly in the age we're living in with extraordinary weapons and independent actor

there? >> i already called for an overfly zone, no fly zone over syria already. they are iran's partner. they are attached at the hip. and we have to stand firm with our ally in that region israel. there needs to be no space between the united states and israel and this administration has absolutely bungled. the most muddled foreign policy i have ever remember in my lifetime. whether it was in '09 when we had the opportunity covertly over thely or other ways of helping the iranian citizens as they were trying to overthrow that repressive regime. whether it was working with mubarak and trying to have a moderate come in and release him. and now we have seen this president as mit and newt have talked about asking the iranians to give us back that drone. what we should have done is one of two things. either destroy it or retrieve it. he took a third route which was the worst and the weakest and that is to do nothing. >> now, to my colleague, neil cavuto. >> i want to move on to energy issues and speaker gingrich i would like to begin with you. as you know, the president has rejected any eff

that with the connection that tehran has with damascus in syria and support for hamas and hezbollah, and i say that we have a very lethal combination of elements that are playing out here. as for me, i say the leadership in iran has already decided to go nuclear. a think they have looked at the world. they have looked at north korea. they have said they are a nuclear power. they are really out of reach for most people. and they look at libya, which had a program that they gave up in exchange for international friendships and alliances. look at what happened there. i think tehran as saying we want the leverage and the stature that be a nuclear power will bring. so we have to ask ourselves a simple question. can you live with a nuclear iran? if the answer is yes, then you have to live with the dramatic proliferation implications, including saudi arabia, turkey, egypt, although we do not know what the leadership structure will look like there anytime soon, but it does look like the strong backbone of the egyptian military will go nuclear. at that point, you have lost control. that is an unsustainable position
